Band of Pirates!!

YARR!! Beware Geek Out attendees! A band of scurvy pirates be land locked and are looking for their booty treasure! If found, Geek Out will be their new merry pirate fortress where they will have happy pirate minstrels wondering among the crowds and merry time at their campsite!
To celebrate finding their lost booty treasure, they will be performing Saturday night! You don't want to miss this show!!
So, get your eye patches and peg legs ready! The pirates are upon us!

Band of Pirates' fancifully-dressed musicians artfully cover tunes both familiar and uncommon, from the Golden Age of Piracy up to the present day, all with a piratey twist. From Cincinnati, Ohio, they have performed around the region at festivals, faires, breweries, casinos, cabarets, even on riverboats, and have been featured in locally and regionally produced movies as well as on television, most recently on the national premier episode of "The Gong Show." Don't miss your chance to catch this exceptionally entertaining group of rogues and scallywags.

Whoa! Remember all those crazy rock stacks that were all over the creek at camp?! Well, the guys that made them are coming back to do it again and will even be hosting a workshop on how to make these amazing pieces of natural art!!

Carl has been presenting the meditative form of rock balancing for almost a decade. He's experienced in multiple styles of balancing, as well as being extremely passionate about exposing this art form to the public. He's performed such art at music festivals such as Electric Forest, Eclipse Yaa, Wham Bam Thank You Jam and is returning to Geek Out this year.
